    Simply put, they didn't sell. I was in heaven when I found out Saint Seiya was going to come to the US. Before the show started the toys came out.... and I bought wave 1 right away.... if only because I'm a big fan. I'm pretty sure I was the only one in town that bought any. Even when they were on extream clearence they just sat there. Most likey they threw them out or shipped them back to the manufacturer.

    If you want Seiya stuff... look for the new (import)Bandai line. They've been out for a lot of years.... but they are still pretty easy to find. Check out BIG BAD TOYSTORE or HOBBYLINK JAPAN.

    It died, due to lack of interest in both the show and the toys.

    I think he's confusing Warriors of the Zodiac with Knights of the Zodiac (Saint Seiya).

    McFarlane toys all around is on the rocks. Doesn't help that like TRU, one of the few retail outlets for those figs, pretty much never seem to replenish stock or clearance out any of the old stuff. I still see Marvel Man and that has to be what, 5 years old at least?

    I'd be willing to bet we see Todd back on a Spidey special/mini at Marvel within the next 2 years.

    Man of Miracles, actually. And yes, it's an acquired Spawn character(it's like Jesus in another form)

    McFarlane is about a day away from going under. They've cancelled everything but Halo and Sports.

    Man of Miracles. It was supposed to be Miracleman, who was originally called Marvelman. But the rights to the character and name are highly disputed.

    McFarlane toys couldn't last in todays market. Not surprised they went under.
